I have always enjoyed meeting new people and hearing their stories. I am proud to say a by-product of my family and country background. Always having a fascination with the broader new world, I eventually found myself managing a team in Asia, dealing with Australian expat financial issues.

I soon became personally interested in the number of Australian expats that were looking to retire to Asia – and the lack of companies available to assist in this transition. Eventually, I felt it was time to say farewell to the corporate world and build a business for myself. Something personal that I can be proud of and our clients can take comfort from.
